Hello again. Well, the saga continues. I came to find out that, while, the solution being applied inside was Phantom, the stuff being used outside was not Termidor! Supposedly, it was "just as effective", and I gave the guy the benefit of the doubt. The first day after the application, it seemed to be doing the job - not one ant. However, the following morning, it rained for a couple of hours, and, that evening, they were back with a vengeance! I was furious, felt my trust had been betrayed, and said enough was e-freaking-nough, and applied Termidor myself. There has still been some activity - 8 alive in the house tonight, but that is a lot lower than the 30+ I was back to killing the other night. I only applied it to the foundation, and will go back and apply some a foot up on the outside walls tomorrow. And I plan to aggressively pursue some sort of discount from the pest control service; they do not charge extra for all of these special treatments, but I feel like I should be compensated in some way for essentially doing their job. Any additional advice you have would be much appreciated!
